The Sims is going mobile. Called The Sims Mobile, apparently it’s already out in Brazil, and will start rolling out to everyone else soon after, according to the Verge. It’s available on both iOS and Android.
While not much details are released about the gameplay, but looks like the mobile release will be based on The Sims 4 “legacy challenge,” a set of self-imposed rules that task players with building and maintaining a family across generations.
The Sims Mobile will be a free-to-play game with social elements, letting players become virtual best friends with their real-life best friends. It’ll also include typical Sims features, so you can design your own characters and customise their home.
According to the Verge, back in 2011, The Sims Freeplay launched on iOS before expanding to other mobile platforms, and that same year The Sims Social made its debut on Facebook, before shutting down two years later. The Sims 4 on PC, meanwhile, is still going strong. EA announced that the game’s monthly active user base jumped 33 percent year-over-year.
